Have you ever seen a music suggestion on iTunes or by a friend and never taken their advice? Or seen an album cover a bunch, but just never checked the music out because you thought it was something completely different than it was? That was me with The Civil Wars. I mean, with a band name that includes "war," I definitely never thought it would be my cup of tea. And dear lord, was I missing out!
Their sound is so beautiful, so capturing, I listened to this album on repeat for days! They have a surprising back story, meeting randomly at a songwriting workshop. They went on hiatus for a while (so disappointing!) but I think they will be coming back with a vengeance soon. So check out the stuff they have out now, and stay tuned for more!
